I thought EaseFab DVD ripper was free for a while. However it only records the first 3 mins of a film then it is about twenty quid to buy to convert the whole film to be able to go on an SD card.
If anyone knows a free software which copies the whole film to SD that will be helpful. Thank you.

A lot could depend on the souce i.e. whether protected or not.

Simplest with either VidCoder or Handbrake ( very similar, really 'related')
(Source > Destination > as mp4)

http://vidcoder.net/

https://handbrake.fr/

If more conmplicated with degree of protection DVDFab Decryptor >

https://www.dvdfab.cn/hd-decrypter.htm?ver=10

(there is a free app in there to find )

To add, might be a good idea to save to your hard drive first as a test - if it seems ok, just copy from hard drive to SD card.

I tried vidcoder and it came up with two DVD as 'error' and suggests that it not liscensed or something for my DVD's which I bought from HMV. vidcoder said it used handbrake, which you suggested Stewart40.
And DVDfab said that my PC would not take this download, or something. And that I tried other software.
I fly on Friday and might just have to rent the films on the plane. Both my long hauls have the tablet rental option, and that is good. However, only have so many to rent. So I'll have to make my needs known...Thank you.

If there are other suggestions then it might still be helpful though.

Sounds like 'copy protection' to much for VidCoder/Handbrake.

Try the download/install for DVDFab HD Decryptor from here >

https://www.videohelp.com/software/DVDFab-Decrypter

It should give two desktop icons DVDFab10 & DVDFab Mini - I'd try from the 'Mini'.*

There are some other decryptors listed here>

https://www.videohelp.com/software/s...rs-dvd-rippers

*When the GUI appears click on the 'Try' button
Insert DVD & its title should appear > click on title & the program should analyse. If a success select/change Save to location & click on MP4

Because it's a 'freebie' there will be a small DVD Fab logo top left.

My 'hands on' experience >
One DVD copied to MP4 with Handbrake and another failed, but it copied to MP4 with DVD Fab.

Memory can become ‘Write protected’ if it has been removed from its slot/port while data is being written to it.
It often has nothing to do with a physical switch.
A friend of mine used to just pull out a USB flash drive after transferring files to it.
I said she was taking a great risk doing that and showed her what she should be doing (using the Safely remove hardware and eject option).



It fell on deaf ears and I had to prove to her what ‘could’ happen.
First I asked her to copy all the data from the USB drive in question and then transfer it to a safe place. I then asked her not to blame me for what 'might' happen next. I explained, she agreed.

Then I started to transfer more data to the USB drive and as soon as it had finished, I immediately pulled the drive out of the slot.

On reinserting it, it was telling us it was Write Protected.
I had removed the drive prematurely and in doing so, proved a point at the expense of a USB drive.
It became useless and could not be used at all – not even formatting (full or quick) could ‘cure’ the issue.

There are several options to try, this page shows a few:

How to remove write protection from USB drives and memory cards

http://www.techadvisor.co.uk/how-to/...cards-3633096/

I tried every option I could find and it was still unusable (as I suspected would happen).
The drive was destroyed.

The issue you are having with your memory might not be the same as the scenario above, but it can happen - I know it can happen as I’ve deliberately done it.
Personally, I wouldn’t spend too much time trying to solve your problem, just use another, working, SD card or other removable media suitable for the receiving device.

Can you establish if the SD card (without adapter) is still 'write protected' in your device ?

Sorry do not know how to check that on the SD card without the adaptor. A quick search does not find any answers.
i have put the sd card in the android phone and it now is not recognised!
